    I could be wrong, but don't you have to "Follow" the channel to receive gifted subs and win giveaways?  Some people may not have known that.  


    Also, not everyone knows they have to reload their browser window if the #free doesn't get counted by moobot.  


    I also don't think it lets you get a gift sub if you had one that expired this month

  2. Kind of why I like rune quest, you roll the dice it comes up as 100, then you roll again, it comes up as even worse, you narrate how you screwed up riding a a bull into battle, had it headbutt a tree get concussed, fall over crush your leg and then used your axe to amputate the crushed leg and throw the severed leg at the enemy to try and scare them off. Because who on earth wants to fight the guy who throws his own leg.

    In a situation like that, a broken neck is often the CoD.

    I've been witness to the aftermath of a number of grisly "accidents", most of which can be attributed to negligence or recklessness on somebodies part.

    FYI: Roughly 70% of motorcycle accidents involve a turning situation where the four wheeler driver isn't alert enough to see the motorcycle.

    Most of the "accidents" that happen on restricted access highways are preventable.  Often you have a situation where the motorcycle rider thinks he's invincible, isn't trying to mentally drive every vehicle around him [a necessity if you want to become an old motorcycle rider fully aware of his own mortality] and is doing something inherently stupid, too often with fatal consequences.

    I'll put my soapbox away now.


    in this case it was on a 25mph road and the bike appears to have hit the back side of the truck some how

    I came across something called Turnip28, an upcoming ruleset for what has been described as "dark fantasy Napoleonic wargaming with a horrible root vegetable theme". The art work and converted minis I've seen for it remind me strongly of Mordheim. 

    that makes sense, because it grew out of a mix of mordheim and inquisitor 28

    For August 1 & 2:

    1 If you were planning/hoping/dreaming of being at Reapercon this year, what is the one program or event you will miss most?

    2 Who is the one Forumite you would like to meet there?

    1 it's something I want to do eventually, but even before covid, it wasn't happening this year. I wanted to try the sophie says painting.

    2 don't know

    Friday, July 31: Do you plan on attending virtual ReaperCon 2020?



    This is my last question, I hope I wasn't too disappointing. Tomorrow, @Corsair will be kicking off August.

    Undecided. I've been messing around with gencon and some other stuff this weekend, so far they're going well enough, so I'll probably try others. Not the same as a real con, but probably as close as I can get at the moment.

    Thursday, July 30: Do you always paint to the best of your abilities, if not, in what circumstances do you dial it back?

    No. My goal is always to have my work be fit for the purpose. If I need 40 minis who are all going to survive for less than half a game, I'll simplify. If a mini needs to travel a lot to games I'll limit complex shading to make it easier to touch up. If I start a mini and realize it just isn't that good I'll cut my losses.

    True, but are miniatures considered toys? I know Bo Peep was considered one,and she was actually part of a lamp fixture, so I guess I don't see why not


    Though now I am imagining a fancy based miniature hauling himself around, though perhaps through toy magic they can hop off and reglue haha

    of course. little pvc aliens counted, as did green army men. the army men had bases

    At work. Nothing to do. The IRS had 5 years to prepare for telework and did not. My deskmate took my computer home and now I'm confined to an empty desk until further notice.


    Work is keeping this place so "clean" that we now have many mice.


    Am considering bringing mouselings as both a passive aggressive complaint to management and to ingratiate myself to the new mouse overlords.

    maybe bring scare cats instead?

     Well, it's much easier to tip a date, although I hear that's illegal except in parts of Nevada... ::D:


    Fun fact - a human being can't actually tip over a cow by brute force... If they're awake they'll most likely move away once they become sufficiently annoyed, or possibly kick you. And sleeping cows have already tipped themselves over - cows sleep lying down.

    Correct. Worked with a guy who spent 3 years in a wheel chair because he tried to tip one. His cousins thought it would be funny to convince him to try it while they were all drunk.

    Well... goes to show I haven't played tournament in a long time...  

    For the original necrons codedx, that would have been difficult... they only had the one troops choice.  which was why I sold mine off years ago, they were incredibly boring to play at the time.  Now though I've considered looking at them again, 

    yes and no. They moved immortals into the troop section an edition ago.

    I mostly run stuff that existed in 3rd edition. warriors, immortals, wraiths, lords, spiders, ctan, scarabs and destroyers.

    Only 40 warriors?  Oh padawan, you have much to learn about the art of troop spam....


    not really. the current edition changed the tournament rules. at 1k points you can have a maximum of 2 copies of a unit in a list. at 2k you can have only 3.


    (not at all annoyed because he owns more admech infantry than that...)

    I have 10 of the old ones to build. Hope that'll be all the warriors I have to build in my life, yeah. The new miniatures look nicer than I thought, I was initially unimpressed by the poses but they're quite characterful. 

    I don't love the new warriors. the degree of damage they all have just seems wrong. So I'm, trying to paint them up with green glow on any damaged bits to try and make them in mid repair as opposed to the the intended rotting look they were sculpted for.

    Although I do quite like the warden, overlord and plasmancer. They seem like a much better fit with the older stuff.
